Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (May 16, 2008)

BIG AND SKETCHY IN YOUR LIVING ROOM
The Big Gay Sketch Show‘s second season is out on DVD with extras that include bloopers, The Big Straight Sketch Show and 10 new bonus sketches.

There are also all the funny sketches from the second season, like that hilarious fake promo for The L Word, and this sketch about a rapper named Lil’ Dyke who insists she’s not gay:

“Cattin’ Around”

There are a bunch of Celesbian Interviews on the DVD, too. Sadly, Julie Goldman and Kate McKinnon action figures are not included.

AYDANOS POR FAVOR, ESCRITORAS LESBIANAS!
Frequent readers of BLWE will recall that neither Malinda nor I speak Spanish, since we both stupidly took French in high school (no offense to our French readers, it’s just not a super useful language to know in the U.S.). But now that HBO’s Spanish language series Capadocia is delivering lesbian scenes that are so hot we can’t post them here on AfterEllen.com, we are in desperate need of someone who is bilingual in Spanish and English who can watch the series and write about it for us.

If you think you’re the right one for the job, please email malindalo at afterellen.com with your resume and two published clips of your writing (in English!). If you don’t have professional experience as a writer but you still think you’d do it better than anyone else, send Malinda a persuasive email telling her why you should get the gig.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

Angela Robinson‘s web series Girltrash will be released in graphic novel form in May 2009, and Angela’s working on a feature film version.

ABC cancelled Cashmere Mafia. We’re shocked.

British comedians James Corden and Mathew Horne are teaming up to write Lesbian Vampire Killers, "a mix of horror and comedy [that] finds the two male leads stuck in a village where all the women have been enslaved by a vampire curse." Just what the world needs — another lesbian vampire movie written by men.

AfterEllen.con contributing writer Rebecca Beirne‘s book Televising Queer Women: A Reader has been published by Palgrave Macmillan. Rebecca edited the volume, which includes scholarly articles about subjects ranging from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to ER, Sex and the City and The O.C.

Book packager LifeTime Media (not to be confused with the Lifetime cable channel) will be publishing a series of books by lesbian tennis legend Billie Jean King, beginning with

Pressure is a Privilege: Lessons I’ve Learned from Life and the Battle of the Sexes. It will be published in August, just in time

to mark the 35th anniversary of King’s "battle of the sexes" match against Bobby Riggs.

In case you missed it: we announced the winners of our Web Series Contest this week: B.J. Fletcher, Private Eye and Ghostella’s Haunted Tomb. Look for new episodes weekly!

The 2008 Hot 100 voting is now closed, but look for teaser blog posts each weekday between now and June 2nd when we publish the results. Thanks to all of you who voted!

No new SMMWT! on Monday (too busy counting Hot 100 resuls this weekend!), but you’ll get a new episode of What’s YOUR Problem? later today.

Save the date: The San Francisco AfterEllen.com Meet-Up will take place on the afternoon of Sunday, June 22, at a location TBD (in San Francisco, obviously!). We’ll let you know where we’ll be as soon as we can.

Attention readers in Paris and Lyon! We need suggestions on a restaurant/bar to hold the AfterEllen.com Meet-Up on June 29 (Paris) and July 4 (Lyon). Please private message Sarah with any recommendations. (Offers to help arrange the location would be much appreciated, too, since Sarah’s French is a little rusty!)

Finally, I’m looking forward to meeting some of you at the NYC AfterEllen.com Meet-Up this weekend. For those who can’t attend, don’t worry, we promise to take lots of photos and tell you all about it next week!
